Wacky Southern Current - Ageless Calm in Times of War
Wacky Southern Current is Marco Cervellin from Italy who, with a little help from his friend Gianni Garbo, recorded these songs at a farmer's country house and this calm of the surrounding rural scenery had a lasting effect on the songs. Ageless Calm in Times of War contains references to diverse music genres such as Kraut- and Progressive Rock, post-rock a la Tortoise, but also contemporary ambient sounds. The latter becomes most apparent in water colours which shows some parallels to Letna's or The Green Kingdom's work. In Ageless Calm in Times of War a melancholic lyricism is prevailing: Observation of the cloud's amorphous ever changing shapes, colourful spots washing out from a distance, the mulberry tree nearby and sparkling reflections of sunlight on a riverbank become personal metaphors for a specific moment.
